The Beach

On golden beach beneath blue sky, With fishing nets beside the pier. Two friends forever you and i. As kids together spirits high. We played our games without a tear, On golden beach beneath blue sky. One day so sad,you said goodbye. We kept in touch most weeks each year, Two friends forever you and i. Conscription came,i do know why. The battle cries rang loud and clear. On golden beach beneath blue sky Now soiled with blood in my minds eye. My duty now confronts my fear. Two friends forever you and i, As foes together fight or die. Survivors both, we did appear, On golden beach beneath blue sky. Still friends forever you and i.
